Lessons from the jungle

Animals animals all we are Have come from the jungle that's oh so far! Happily happily we came dancing here With many lessons that you all have to hear. I am the ferocious lion king The song of Valour is what I sing Never take a step back in times of peril Be always a man of pride and virile. I am the mighty elephant here I do have an empathetic ear It's always good to stay grounded Family turns your life fulfilled. I'm the little squirrel in the burrow Unfailingly active in every high and low Vigilance and resilience are my innate traits Your effort, I say, opens all the gates. I am the restless naughty monkey I am ingenious and witty Fun and mischief are so vital In a serious lifestyle for a quick revival. I am the curious cub of the bear My mom is so strict and fair She taught me the way to make an owlish choice And to always listen to the clever mind voice. Animals animals all we are Have come from the forest that's oh so far! Oh dear humans! You're the best of all Live and let live breaking the wall.

So wise, witty, and rhythmical … The Sages of old noted that we learn cleanliness from the cat, industriousness from the ant, kindness from the stork, etc. You have now joined their ranks in wisdom---but not in age, OF COURSE. Best wishes, Gershon
